Next up in our annual series of Fringe preview Q & A’s it’s the turn of Origins.
In one sentence tell us about your show.
Origins is psycho-physical thriller about the world’s first murderer.
What made you decide to bring a show this year?
It was irresistible to bring our debut piece of physical theatre to the Edinburgh Fringe after creating an internationally friendly piece of work, that contains no text, and deals in vivid imagery and movement.
Any advice you’ve heard or can give to anyone coming to the Fringe for the first time?
I have heard it is recommended to work closely with the companies that perform before and after your piece. Ask to flyer their line of attendees and allow them the same in return.
What makes your show stand out from all the others on offer? (Don’t say that it’s because you’re in it!)
In Origins, we are dealing with a total orchestration of luscious original music, iridescent and atmospheric lighting, with dynamic and visceral movement. On top of this we add the deeply emotional journey of the central character, Cain, to deliver a spellbinding and magical performance on stage.
What show, other than your own, do you not want to miss?
I would not miss the one man show by Jamie Wood called I am a Tree. Hilarious.
Finally, the boring but essential bit:
